By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us…
~ Luke 1:7
I’m not a big fan of dawn. Especially now in semi-retirement, I prefer to greet the light of morning from the comfort of my own bed. At our little house in Methow Valley I can literally see the sunrise with my head on my pillow and only one eye open.
Sunsets, on the other hand, are my favorite time of day. Watching color emerge and then fade along the horizon rarely fails to bring peace to my heart, at least for the moments while the light show lasts. In our valley, I find that sunset often enfolds me in peace and tenderness in a way that dawn rarely gets a chance.
WATCH: Have you ever seen a sunrise? What colors do you see? When do you see the sunrise clearly, and when is it not so clear? Sunrises tell us a new day is starting. What new things are starting around you?
